  • What Kind of Glass Cleaner Should I Use?

    0

    In all my years in the glass business, believe it or not, the most common question asked of me is, “what kind of glass cleaner is it that you’re using?” Which was typically followed by ” I love the way it smells.” Well, the answer is and has always been the same for me, “SPRAYWAY” by CRL. In the past Sprayway has only been sold wholesale to glass shops and distributors but CRL recently started selling in a more public venue. Sprayway is a great cleaner that doesn’t streak or film and makes glass cleaning easier and quicker. No CFC’s either, so the earth will thank you for that. Here’s a helpful hint, clean your windows and glass during a time of day when they’re not in direct sun contact. For best performance use a medium to dense fiber paper towel when cleaning. Should you have any trouble finding these products, I’ve included an Amazon affiliate links to help you.

    How to Save Money by Weatherproofing Your home

    0

    One of my biggest peeves is the placement of ac/heater registers on the floor right under a window. The warm/cold air you’re paying to produce is being negatively affected as soon as it rises out of the register. Older windows, especially aluminum/metal windows, represent one of the weakest points in your home’s defense against the outside air temperature. If you have registers under windows, try replacing their covers with directional covers or use a magnetic deflector. These devices will direct the forced air flow away from windows and more toward the center of the room which allows it to affect your indoor ambient air with full power versus having it chilled or heated by air temperature around windows. If its inconvenient or you have trouble finding one of these, I’ve included an amazon affiliate link so you can have some of these delivered to you. Just unwrap it and set it right on top of your existing register making sure the air flow is directed away from the wall or in the direction you want the air to flow.
